A sunroof question

Post by niggly58 » Sun Feb 17, 2019 4:21 pm

On a trip to London today, I was alongside a 68 reg VW Tiguan SEL also in Indium Grey.
I noticed that their sunroof was open, but it was tilted up at the back edge, like the old pop-up type. Ours just slides back flat and the wind deflector comes up at the front.
Is the one fitted different now, or have I missed a function on our panoramic roof?

If you don't open it fully only the back tilts up. Watch the beginning and end of this video

It’s been a while since I’ve used mine ! Pretty sure it does tilt though. Pull lever back to open. Push it up to tilt.

Does anyone know if there's a maximum speed the roof can't be opened above? I was wondering how strong the cloth covered frame is.
I've not found anything in the owners manual.

It has to tilt before it can physically slide back, it a flush fit.
